Stars quit Instagram over privacy rules

Pink, Mia Farrow and Taraji P. Henson are among the stars who are turning their backs on photo-sharing website Instagram.com after privacy conditions were changed, allowing bosses to sell users' images to third parties.

The new rules for the popular phone application and social media tool - which is owned by Facebook - were posted online late on Monday, and singer Pink was among the first celebrities to take note.

In a post on her Twitter blog on Tuesday morning, she writes, "I WILL BE QUITTING INSTAGRAM TODAY. WHAT A BUMMER. YOU SHOULD ALL READ THEIR NEW RULES."

Actress Henson also sent out a warning to her followers, alongside a link to an article detailing the updated conditions.

She tweets, "If this is true I will have to delete my acct (account). you have until January 16th to do so", while Farrow admits she has no problem dumping the photo-enhancement technology, writing, "A small pleasure: deleting my Instagram app."

They weren't the only celebrities taking action over the new rules - former House star Kal Penn tweets, "Sorry I gotta delete you, Instagram. I liked your filters", and rapper Xzibit revealed he was disappointed by the altered privacy conditions: "Say it aint so instagram,debo (steal) everyones pics and then turn around and sell them to 3rd parties with no shared revenue (sic)? deleting my instagram".

However, Blink-182 rocker Mark Hoppus is undecided about continuing with the app, posing the question: "what are we going to do about our instagram accounts?"
